You can search through singles using filters such as age, education, height or even body type. It is useful if you are looking for something specific.

The compatibility score shows how well matched you are to someone, based on different factors such as your interests or your replies in a tailored questionnaire.
You can specify your sexual orientation (e.g. heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual), which can make it easier to find a match.
This feature is aimed at creating real life meet ups, and fast. You can use it at events such as a concert, or even at a coffee shop to see if there are any singles about.
This feature means you can avoid interacting with someone if you have already had contact in the past – e.g., viewed profiles, favorited or sent messages to each other. This feature can avoid wasting time and also avoid any potential embarrassment.

Notifications

You can see when someone has opened your message, so you know whether or not it has been read yet.
